Air defense units of the Eastern Military District, which are deployed on the islands of the Kuril Ridge, took up combat duty at the Tor-M2U complexes, reports INTERFAX-AVN with reference to the headquarters of the Eastern Military District.


Russian Defense Ministry: Tor-MXNUMU anti-aircraft defense complexes have begun to perform combat duty in the Kuril Islands


“At present, the air defense duty is organized as part of two batteries of anti-aircraft missile systems Tor-MXNUMU,” the message reads. Interfax-AVN.

Tor-M2U, developed by the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern, is a complex of a new generation of short-range air defense systems of the Tor family. It is intended for the organization of air defense of the most important military and government facilities from aircraft strikes, cruise missiles, helicopters, guided missiles, guided and planning bombs, unmanned aerial vehicles, within the zone of destruction of the complex, at night and in the afternoon, in a complex meteorological and jamming environment.

The combat vehicle of the Tor-MXNUMU air defense missile system can be configured to simultaneously detect more than 2 targets, ranking them according to the degree of danger, firing and tracking four targets simultaneously with four successively launched rockets. Anti-aircraft guided missiles of the complex were developed specifically for the effective interception of small-sized intensively maneuvering targets, which creates a significant advantage over the closest counterparts from abroad.

    How did I wait for this news! .. Finally, they covered up the most airborne dangerous direction, now the Japanese and their helicopter carriers will not be able (as if in passing) to hint Russia about a possible Japanese landing operation to seize several islands or the entire Kuril ridge. Lick it ... the USA is one thing the Japanese, but not everyone wants to pay for a hypothetical adventure with dozens of helicopters with an airborne assault on the approach to the Kuril Islands ... wink

    Still, there should be more Club / Bastion on the Kuril Islands and air defense of the S-400 / BUK-M3 type ... But in any case, Plate Gauntlet (NATO's TOP classification) will reliably cover our islands with air especially from the US satellite landing.

      What does the helicopter have to do with it. Helicopters there and from Hokkaido calmly fly. And it seems that the Japanese are going to negotiate with us. Friendship world laughing

        I do not understand the cons. That someone is seriously going to fight with the Japanese or believes that they will treacherously attack the "defenseless" Kuril Islands? Anyway, the Torah is designed to cover at an average distance moving parts and compounds. Initially, as far as I know, tank. The Kuril Islands alone and across are small. Why do they put the Torah there? I think because of the caterpillar track (off-road).

      Three S-400 divisions have already been deployed
      3 divisions in 53 DPVO 1532 zrp Pacific Fleet (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky) differs from the earlier set by the presence 24 PU (3 divisions) deployed in 2015.

    Well, the answer is clearer nowhere to all the "claims" on territorial issues from the "sun-rising".

    And what about “Tor”, and where did it go? Was it reinforcement or replacement, or were there Kuriles without cover?

    Some air defense systems do not solve the problem. You need to have all the options for defensive means in sufficient quantity !!! The personnel of the troops, which will not profit from military property. And of course, the Navy grouping, which at the Pacific Fleet is practically plundered, sawn, sold. What it is is modest compared to the Japanese fleet. New "Boreas" for other tasks.

    The Kuril Islands are a loose concept (from Shumshu to Habomai about 1200 km. It would be interesting to know where exactly the complexes with a range of 15 km were built, taking into account the fact that the pevashny radar network in the region was mostly destroyed back in the early 90's (jeans , chewing gum, friendship, etc.)
    In short: in the case of a global sheer, it is still not possible to punish - hands are short.

    Yeah ... covered up. Damn, but be realistic at last. Well, do not express such intense admiration .. 2 batteries (8 combat vehicles) with a range of 12-15 km per 1200 km of island length ??? This is what you call cover and impossibility for the Japanese fleet. The defeat zone does not even cover territorial waters ... Or do you think that there will be a fighting vehicle on every island? It won’t work out that way.
    ... "Dozens of helicopters will pay."


    64 missiles on 4 cars. Maximum - shelling 32 targets, then silence for 18 minutes, reloading. Or you think that the radio command will be protected from their electronic warfare, and the Japanese will climb, which is called "not knowing the ford." without cover?
    Well it’s good that at least something started to change, but 2 batteries are NOT CLOSING

    Gain. Prior to this, the 18th artillery and machine-gun division (on Kunashir and Iturup) had 12 Strela-10 self-propelled guns (I don’t know the modification, 12) Shilok and EMNIP, either 8 or 10 units 23-2. That's all the air defense. Now added another 8 SOU "Tor". And all this on two islands. Rest.....

    Apparently on Kunashir and Iturup, where the division is deployed

    Putin is first obliged to "call in" the Kuril Islands. Grab the “gifts of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk” and the plan for the Soviet offensive on the Japanese islands for 45 years. Are there cats on the Kuril Islands? The bear will come down too ...... everything that they did in Japan do in China ...... everything that they do in China do in ..... drinks

    It doesn’t matter how many more cars are on duty. The main thing is that this happened after the meeting of Lavrov with a Japanese colleague. Lavrov is a trolling fan ... smile

    Yes, by the way, I’m sorry. Back in 2008-2009 there were a dozen Bukovs (the first modification, as far as I remember). is there now - HZ. And about the fact that this happened after the meeting of ministers - a matter of chance. it was planned back in 2011, 4 years ago, and only now it seems like hands have reached ...
